Hidden In The Sea

I remain silent, hidden in the clefts of the sea.  The noble ocean covers the earth.  Who am I in the vastness of these waters.  I lay down, in the wash of waves.  Peace floods in.  Here I remain.  

My beloved do not be afraid
do not speak
stay as you are
I am here at your side...

Sea Weathered Black

The darker shades of our Sea-weathered Cottage....  
A calm white and grey palette accompanied by the deeper elements of the sea...weathered wood, tattered linen, black pottery, and dark sea waters.

Sea Weathered Black
 Everything is sea weathered with a Coastal French Nordic style.  The darker sea waters of the Northern Coast influence a wilder nature for our Seawashed lifestyle.  The tattered,weathered and worn give a casual feel of comfort.  The grey washed shores permeate a wintry vibe year round. 
The restoration of our 1972 Vintage Travel Trailer Seawashed Pearl  is currently under way.  She will have the same sea weathered french nordic coastal style.   She is now adorning a new exterior Stone Grey stripe.  You can visit her blog to take a peek.
